Fly Performances: Solange Awes on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

Solange continues to make the rounds promoting her highly celebrated album A Seat at the Table.

On Thursday (Dec. 15) the R&B songstress stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to deliver a captivating performance. Offering soothing harmonious sounds Solange, backed by singers and a live band delivered an invigorating medley of “Rise” and “Weary.”

Visually, viewers were treated to a moody and warm sea of red in varying intensities from the lighting, to the circular backdrop, and even outfits. Dressed in stunning jumpsuits connected by beautifully draped fabric, Solange and her singers looked radiant and mesmerizing as their bodies gracefully yet intensely shifted through the choreography while they sang their angelic voices off.

The connected jumpsuits; a concept thought of by Solange herself, were designed by her mama Tina Knowles and created by Tim Wise as Tina revealed in a gushing Instagram post.

 

The proud mama was also beaming with joy last month when Solange performed on Saturday Night Live for the first time. Just like last night’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon the fashionista’s performance along with her gorgeously intricate look and hairstyle stole the show.

King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude

Pusha T gave powerful performance on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” last night. Performing new track “Sunshine” along with “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets” off his new project King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, Pusha touched on the racial issues the country is still facing. The socially conscious song “Sunshine” is perfectly complemented by Jill Scott soulful crooning on the hook, and mentions Freddie Gray, Dom Lemon, Huey P. Newton, and Chief Keef.

When asked by Noah whether this is a theme present throughout the album Pusha T retorted:

“I’m talking about everything that’s going on in society. The good, the bad, and the ugly.”

‘King Push – The Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude’ drops Friday December 18th via Def Jam & G.O.O.D. Music. The album is available now for preorder on iTunes.

The ‘Empire’ Cast, Chris Brown, Patti Labelle, Tank, John Legend, Mary J. Blige Perform for ‘Taraji & Terrence’s White Hot Holidays’ Special [Video]

taraji-p-henson

The Lyons (Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollett & Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) brought a superb presentation to the main stage, only this time out of their actual Empire characters, but as themselves, performing with the likes of: John Legend, Chris Brown, Tank, Patti Labelle, Mary J. Blige and more.

Chris grace the stage paying homage to the “Lucious Lyon” character, donned in all brown paired with a white tee under his blazer, and a brown fedora.

Performing the classic “This Christmas” with singer Tank and his current single “Back To Sleep”, you could notice a slight vocal tension in Chris’ voice, which affected the singer’s overall performance, showing that he was clearly under the weather.

Of course, Social Media had a lot to say [in the negative zone] and “Cookie” aka Taraji jumped in to save the day.

Sick or not, Chris stayed committed to his performance and that’s all that counts. He carried out the task as a true performer should.

Congrats to everyone that took part. It was indeed a great show! We hope Patti brought some of her famous pies for everyone backstage! 🙂
